Two More McClatchy Articles About USACIL

In its series of stories about the Army Crime Lab (USACIL) at Ft. Gillem, Georgia, McClatchy Newspapers has highlighted a number of issues at the lab, from analysts who falsified test results to extreme dissention in the staff.  These latest articles reveal additional information about trouble between lab leadership and its employees regarding management styles, racial discrimination complaints, and a perceived bias against  military veterans in hiring practices.  The lab problems have even prompted recent congressional attention. 

Our previous coverage of the lab woes is here and here.  (And, yes, this is the official lab insignia.  I'll refrain from making the obvious comment.)
